Throwback Thursday: Shimmer Spray & Salt

TBT Shimmer Sprays Panel Throwback Thursday: Shimmer Spray & Salt

Combine spray inks with salt for a unique background. Spray inks are wonderful for layering various colors, just make sure to start with the lightest color first. Sprinkling salt on wet ink and drying creates a speckled effect. Teri Anderson used this cool technique on her Whole World Kin card in Stamp It! Techniques, Vol. 1. She then added an elegant stamped image to complete the stunning focal point on her card.

    In Step 2, what do you mean by “emboss”? Do you mean “dry” instead?

  3. Debs says:

    Off to give this a try. Stunning.

    Hi Lynda, yes, you are basically drying the ink using a heat gun, which technically is heat embossing. Hope that helps!
